About the club

The 'City of Portsmouth Athletic Club' has always been based at 'Alexandra Park Athletics track' which is part of 'The Mountbatten Leisure Centre'

Thanks to an influx of new youngsters inspired by the London Olympics in 2012, the club has increased to nearly 500 members and there are numerous 'Coaching' and 'Competition' opportunities for everyone.

Under the Chair of 'Phil Budd', City of Portsmouth Athletic Club  has also widened its approach in the wider athletic community through satellite clubs, networking and development and also by involvement with the local community, for example through schools, local businesses and Portsmouth City Council.

Under our experienced and committed team of  UK Athletic Qualified Coaches, the club's 'Athletes' are flourishing and we have many athletes who are county representatives and highly ranked in the UK in all disciplines from Sprinting, Jumping and Throwing, Sportshall, Cross Country and Road Running.

The club competes in a number of Track and Field leagues at Senior and Junior Level, for example, in the Southern Athletics League, The British Athletics League, The Alder Valley League, The Wessex Athletics League, The Youth Development Leagues and it's athletes compete in Hampshire and Regional competitions, while our top athletes compete up to national level.  For our Endurance athletes, there numerous road races to enter and for the more adventurous, the club competes in two cross country leagues in junior and adult age categories.
